Dixon possesses good instincts and shows good vision, adept at reading the quarterback’s eyes and making a play on the ball. Having played both cornerback and safety in high school — although he is expected to end up at safety in college — he has proven himself capable in both zone and man coverages, displaying a closing speed that allows him to effectively jump routes. My biggest qualm is that he is not quite as polished a tackler as I’d like for a safety, frequently delivering shoulder tackles rather than wrapping up.
Dixon was also the fourth-highest rated performer at The Opening Atlanta Combine back in March, finishing with a 4.56 40-yard dash and a 37-9 inch vertical.
